Fashion designer and colon cancer survivor, Carmen Marc Valvo along with author, television health correspondent and psychiatry professor, Dr. Georgia Witkin were honored with the Spirit of Life Award which is given to individuals who represent all that embodies hope and whose professional and humanitarian accomplishments are worthy of celebration. Recipients of this prestigious award include a broad range of leaders from the world of business, entertainment, fashion, science, and philanthropy. To date, the annual luncheon has raised $12 million for City of Hope and hope to continue its success.

Carmen Marc Valvo, who has outfitted countless celebrities like Beyonce and Catherine Zeta-Jones, featured his latest designs in the fashion show presentation at this year's luncheon. Outside of fashion, Valvo has also been active in raising awareness about colon cancer and is additionally donating all proceeds from his book "Dressed to Perfection, The Art of Dressing for Your Red Carpet Moments" to colon cancer research.

Dr. Georgia Witkin, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and of OB/GYN & Reproductive Sciences at Mt. Sinai Medical Center and an accomplished author of 13 books on stress said, "I am amazed by the dedication and generosity I witnessed at City of Hope, of their physicians, researchers, staff and volunteers - all of whom work tirelessly every day to create a future free from the devastations of cancer. I am honored to be recognized by an organization that I have supported for many years".
